LiveOnNY honors organ and tissue donor heroes and shares the stories of how their generosity allows other to live on. The first story features Karen, who was diagnosed with cardiac disease at an early age and wasn’t sure she would live past college. Thanks to the courageous act of Thomas, an organ donor hero, Karen received a lifesaving heart transplant and was able to eventually give life to her daughter. Hear more from this first-time mom about her transplant journey and gift of life at LiveOnNY.org/Karen.
